Djalu’ Gurruwiwi yiḏaki E/F# (HLY-307) SOLD


Out of stock

Another great catch for those who would like to own a yiḏaki from Djalu’ – or would like to get another good stick in their collection. Due to the spacious internal chamber and the open bell the backpressure is medium to low, therefore this insrument requires an experienced player to reach its real potential, however it should not scare you away. Once you can handle this great didgeridoo, you will find it extremely rewarding: the resonant warm sound gets under your skin and shake your bones. I needed a little wax on the mouthpiece to reduce the size and shape it a little.
Once again, a great instrument for slower, meditative rhythms and playing styles.
